Tasting notes
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Citrusy,Lemsip powder,sherbet.
Palate: Sweeter than perhaps the nose suggested and fuller,with a beautiful lemon bonbon taste evolving into peach and melon.
Finish: Nicely balanced and very fruity.
Comment: Much much better than the old version.A perfect session whisky.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Tangy. A little spirity. Fudge. Caramelised apples. Vanilla and creamy notes tone the sharpness down. Polished floor.With water, rhubarb jam.
Palate: Much sweeter the nose let expect. An unpleasant cardboard and turpentine note. Not much behind.
Finish: Dry,spicy,quickly fading.
Comment: Disappointing.The nose has more than the palate.Less cardboardy with water but surprisingly fiery.
